Hooft (philosophy, Deakin U.-Melbourne) does not try to dispel the vagueness of ethics in health care, nor to provide concrete guidelines for action. Rather he argues that in order to be virtuous and, more specifically, in order to be caring, a health worker must be possessed of certain kinds of knowledge. For those who evince the virtue of caring, he says, sound judgment will be influenced by their caring orientation, and will discern what is relevant to the health and well- being of all relevant parties in the situation at hand.
